Volvo Penta Boat-Parts

Cruise the high-seas in style with a Volvo Penta motor urging you along. Penta motors provide sailing and boating enthusiasts with reliable power and performance. Whether you need an engine for your yacht, sailboat, or powerboat, Volvo Penta motors have your needs covered.

How does your Volvo Penta engine fight corrosion?

Corrosion is a big problem for all water-going vessels. Volvo Penta designers protect their engines by covering sensitive parts with at least three layers of protective paint. Then, other corrosion-fighting substances, including titanium ceramic coatings, cover the paint itself, forming a lasting and comprehensive shield against insidious marine corrosion.

Another way Volvo Penta engines protect against damage is with aluminum engine-blocks and fresh water cooling systems. By using fresh rather than saltwater for motor-cooling, possible corrosion is immediately precluded. Backing this system up are Penta proprietary corrosion-resistant aluminum engine-blocks. Aluminum blocks battle oxidation while pushing performance to new levels due to their lightweight and good heat-conducting properties.

How can the speed control design help you?

Maintaining a constant speed through waves and other water-borne obstacles takes a toll on boat-drivers. Now, Volvo Penta Speed Control technology does this job automatically, freeing you up so that you too can enjoy the ride.

Is the motors valve optimized?

Yes, it is. Fixed camshafts have their uses but do not always allow for optimum valve performance. Volvo Penta solves this issue with the addition of variable valve timing for their ocean-going craft. By using interchangeable cams at different engine loads, these engines provide an efficient power output at various revolutions per minute. In addition, valve optimization can also do the following:

  • Improve fuel-efficiency: By matching the performance to the load, inefficiencies and waste decrease.
  • Better power: Variable designs strive to provide adequate power and torque for every situation.
  • Low emission: Volvo Pentas use a recirculation system that recaptures and reprocesses unburned fuels, thus reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
What kind of injection technology do Volvo marine engines use?

Volvo Penta powerhouses used multi-port injection for power for a long time. This injection method has many strengths, but Volvo includes direct injection dynamos in their list of power-options. While multi-port designs inject fuel into the intake ports of the cylinder, direct designs spray gas or diesel straight into the combustion chamber. This action often results in increased gas-mileage and enhanced performance.

Can wideband oxygen sensors help you?

Wideband sensors provide your ECU with wide-ranging fuel/air measurements, allowing it to compensate for variations in fuel-type, elevation, and weather conditions.
